This no-frills, sunny little cafe serves a mishmash of Italian, Middle Eastern and straight coffee shop dishes. Nothing here will change your life, but everything is fairly priced and tastes fresh and homemade in a way that can't be faked. Crepes are stuffed with pesto-mozzarella-tomato, goat cheese-portobello or lox-sour cream. Daily soup and pasta specials are worth a try, as is the platter of various Middle Eastern salads. Best of all is homemade stuffed cabbage Ã¢‚¬" juicy, well-seasoned ground beef swaddled in tender green cabbage.
